I was asked by email@example.com to assess both Canada and Ireland. I did so during a very busy time during the school term. I was also the main editor for the previous 2 years and one of the new indicators such as land registry was included based on my input. I dutifully filled out the 2016 index. Also, every year in my 4th year Critical Data Studies Class the students are asked to assess a dataset according to the OKF Criteria. They must learn the methodology, and download the spreadsheets and submit an assessment. This is now the 3rd year, and approximate 75 students have submitted assessments. All this to say that I am very familiar with the GODI, have contributed extensively and have been a long standing editor.
Because I am marking and thus verifying the work the students have submitted and I am examining the results in the index. By doing so I have discovered many errors in the Canadian Submission and note that all of my original submissions have disappeared, that I am not acknowledge, and submissions seem to be annonymous. This begs the question as to what has happened to my submissions and why were they changed without me receiving any notification? I go through great pains to ensure and accurate, fair, robust and reliable assessment. It takes me many hours of volunteer and expert time to do so, and I consult when I have uncertainties and also communicate with public officials to validate results.
I very much want to continue to support this process but I am beginning to question quality and process. Can you please help me understand what has happened to the submissions that I made? and so on? The assessment is in fact faulty in some occasions and these should be corrected.
